Magento: Remove auto breaks (“br/”) from product description

Share
Posted on July 11th, 2014 | Posted by admin

By Default Magento automatically adds

 <br/>

html tags to product descriptions for display on the customer interface.  If you have created a nice description with the WYSIWYG Editor or imported HTML descriptions you most likely want to remove this behavior.   Luckily this is not hard to do.

1.  Find the file “description.phtml” here:  /app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/view/description.phtml

2. Make a local copy by copying the file to your local template.  You may need to create the same path in your Magento template (you never want to change core code for upgrade reasons).

MAGENTO ISSUE FIX – “EL IS NULL”

I have recently come across an issue when trying to add a Widget to a CMS page.

When clicking “Insert Widget” a javascript alert appeared shouting El is NULL.

The reason for this is a missing forward slash from Lib/Varien/Data/Form/Element/Editor.php Line 202.

To fix this error copy Lib/Varien/Data/Form/Element/Editor.php to app/code/local/Lib/Varien/Data/Form/Element/Editor.php

How to enable payment methods for admin only in Magento

One of our customers wanted to enable a payment method to display in the admin area only.

To solve this we edited the core files found in

app/code/core/Mage/Payment/Model/Method/Checkmo.php

for the Check/Money Order option as the client didn’t want to actually take payments.

First we created a back-up for the Checkmo.php file and then after the following code:
